The next section is North America. The North American section is filled with animal you are probably familiar with if you live in the United States. In the plains you can find white tailed deer, bison, Texas longhorns, and turkeys. In the pond, you can find waterfowl, cranes, and turtles. Also housed in the North American section you will find river otters, foxes, bald eagles, coatis, mountain lions, ocelots, and bobcats.
There are alligators, black bears, and seriously endangered prairie chickens. While not from North America, two white Asian reside in the North America section. Their names are Willie King and Meka, they are brother and sister, and they are one of the main highlights of the zoo.
